WooWeekly #449: Quantity Selectors | Editable Custom Order Status

Hello there,

Welcome back to WooWeekly, your weekly appointment with WooCommerce tutorials, tips and updates handpicked for you (and the other 17,555 subscribers) so that you can learn something new.

It’s getting warmer here in Sicily and I’m honestly dreaming of moving to the beach house asap. Unfortunately, renovations are still ongoing, then we need to do a few rounds of cleaning, and only around mid July we’ll be able to go. Having said that, the house looks beautiful now, with a new roof, new windows, fresh paint, renovated bathroom and outdoor stairs – so it was probably worth it. Let’s hope all goes according to plan and we can leave the city soon!

Business-wise, I’m finally getting back to full-time work after some very busy weeks. I hope to finish some client work, get started with my private mastermind group for WooCommerce developers, and get back into “bulk release mode” regarding my WooCommerce Mini-Plugins. Fingers crossed!

Back to WooCommerce tips now – enjoy.

1. WooCommerce Tips & Tutorials

WooCommerce: Add to Cart Pre-defined Quantity Selectors

The WooCommerce Single Product Page add to cart form features a quantity input and an add to cart button. Now, let’s imagine you want to change this experience based on your business requirements, and instead of the quantity input and add to cart button you want to show 3 buttons: “Add 1 to the cart“, “Add 2 to the cart“, “Add 3 to the cart“. Let’s do it! ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Allow Order Editing For Custom Order Status

WooCommerce admins are allowed to “edit” an order only when this is in the “on hold” or “pending payment” status. By “edit” I mean having the chance of modifying or adding products, fees, shipping and recalculating the totals, which are not allowed once the order has been placed (“processing“, “completed“, etc.). Let’s change that! ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

2. ICYMI: WooCommerce Articles

WooCommerce: “Load More Related Products” Ajax Button @ Single Product Page

As you know, the WooCommerce Single Product Page displays a set amount of related products (usually 4). But despite the fact that you can customize the number of related products via code, there is no setting that allows you to have a “LOAD MORE” button instead. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Disable Related Products Shuffle

Whenever WooCommerce “calculates” the list of Related Products, it searches for 15 of them (unless otherwise specified via custom code). Then, it shuffles them. This may get messy when, as a store owner, you may want to direct people to the same related products over and over again (i.e. always show the same set of related products). ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Get Total Sales By Product Category

I sell both consulting and non-consulting products on this same website, so it’s important for me to keep track of category sales year-on-year, especially when my goal is reducing 1-to-1 client work while increasing scalable product sales such as courses, plugins and memberships. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Redirect Specific Category To Product Page

Although this is a rare scenario, let’s see how easy it is to redirect customers directly to the single product page in case you don’t want them to see the category page first. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Update Self-Hosted Plugin @ WP Dashboard

In this million-dollar tutorial you will learn how to update a custom (WooCommerce) plugin that you host somewhere, directly from the WordPress dashboard. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Email Admin Upon Fatal Error

What I want to try (please test it on your development website first, and not on your live website), is a way to get an email each time WooCommerce logs an error, so that I can go in and fix it immediately. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
